_______________________________________________________________________________________

You will need to apply for a permitted temporary event notice (TEN) if either of the following apply:

  • you wish to lawfully carry out licensable activities at premises which do not have a premises licence or club premises certificate
  • the activity or the times at which it is to be carried out are not specified on an existing premises licence or club premises certificate

There are two types of Temporary Event Notice - a 'standard' TEN and a 'late' TEN.  A standard TEN must be given no later than ten working days before the event takes place.  A late TEN may be given no later than five working days but no earlier than nine working days before the event.  (In all cases, 'working days' does not include weekends or Bank Holidays).  Please note that late TENs should be given only in exceptional circumstances where it is not possible to give a standard TEN.
